BENEFITING: LEGAL SERVICES FOR NEW YORK CITY

EVENT DATE: May 21, 2016

THE STORY:

Brooklyn Legal Services (BLS) provides high-quality, innovative representation to address the pressing legal needs of Brooklyn’s diverse low-income population. BLS focuses on the problems that have the greatest impact on our clients – preserving affordable and decent housing, maintaining income support, redressing abusive lending and consumer practices, promoting family stability and mitigating the effects of domestic violence, and advocating for people with disabilities. In the past year alone, BLS helped more than 22,000 low-income people.

For most of our clients, just being able to get to court is the biggest barrier to accessing justice. Most of them live on less than $200 per month and struggle to pay for essential items such as shelter, food, and clothing for their children. With such limited income, a $5.50 round-trip subway fare is unaffordable. Many of our clients miss essential meetings with their attorneys and court dates because they just cannot afford to travel.

A group of advocates from Brooklyn Legal Services is running the Brooklyn Half to raise money for a travel fund so that our clients are not forced to choose between saving their homes and putting food on the table.

Please join us in helping to strengthen Brooklyn communities!
